When was the last time you took some real time off? Not a long weekend, or a week, but a couple of weeks or longer? Research shows that when you take a vacation it takes 3 or 4 days to fully relax and forget about the demands of day to day living, and then you start thinking about returning to home and work 2 or 3 days before you return. Hence if you take a week off, you barely have any real down time in the middle of it. We try to take a couple of weeks off every year or so. The last time was the trip to Paris at Christmas of 2004; DG was off from December 15th through New Years that year. We are very ready for another nice break. We will be back on the blog on May 19th. (And we are already making plans for 2 weeks in August of 2007.)

Take care; I’ll try to have lots of pictures and stories from the ancient world when we return.



  1. {sigh} We'll be here waiting for your return (and lovely pictures so that we can live vicariously through you adventures)

    enjoy ;)

  2. ... a couple weeks off? A couple?

    Heck, you know in America that is unheard of. But... maybe that doesn't apply to penguins. ;)

  3. yeah, I was thinking the same thing Meritt - ah, to be a penguin . . .
